Handheld 3D Creation
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
In Spring 2012 our 3D printer had almost completed a 14-hour print when it missed a line, leaving an unplanned gap in the print. A small error had ruined hours of work, and we were going to have to start again. Then inspiration hit: “what if we just took the head of the printer off and filled in the gap?” A day later the 3Doodler was born. The first 3Doodler was a clumsy-looking, hand-assembled, device; a collection of gears, a heater unit, and the printer-head of our now dismantled 3D printer. The words “3Doodler” were etched onto its side in green and red in felt tip pen. The 3Doodler Create is the third generation of this product, and it just keeps getting better and better!
